In life, there are many factors affecting sexual function. The more common are some reproductive system diseases, such as prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis, orchitis and so on.

Besides, experts pointed out that some obese men are accompanied by sexual dysfunction. So, there is a relationship between obesity and sexual function?

Currently, the relationship between obesity and sexual dysfunction is not very clear. Some men are slightly fat, and their sexual function is normal. While for men with obesity, about half of them have sexual dysfunction. So, does obesity affect sexual function? This article will give you a detailed introduction.
Does obesity affect sexual function? 
Obese people are easy to get cardiovascular diseases and metabolic diseases. These diseases themselves can affect male sexual function to a certain extent. In addition, people who are obese do not willing to participate in activities. They are easy to be fatigued, and sometimes they even appear premature ejaculation. Those may be the factors of sexual function reduction.
There are actually many reasons for decreased sexual function in obesity. Excessive obesity can cause increased blood lipids and affect various metabolic functions of the liver. The inactivation ability of estrogen will also decrease, and the conversion of androgens into estrogen will increase, which will increase the level of estrogen in the blood and cause low sexual function.
Studies have pointed out that obesity causes the male genitalia to be wrapped in thick fat, and the penis looks shorter, which affects sexual performance.
At the same time, due to the thick thighs, repeated friction generates heat, which will cause the testicles to stay at a higher temperature for a long time. Thereby, it will reduce the spermatogenic function.

In addition, obesity causes more androgen to be converted into estrogen in men. Higher estrogen concentration can inhibit the secretion of pituitary gonadotropin. Thereby, it will reduce the secretion of testosterone in the testicles.
Finally, obesity will cause male sexual dysfunction, erection, libido, orgasm, and etc. to be unsatisfactory. And various sexual dysfunctions will come to the door to varying degrees and cast a shadow on the sex life.
Sexual function is very important for normal couples. Therefore, once abnormal sexual function occurs, everyone will be extremely nervous and worried. However, there are many factors in life that affect sexual function, and obesity is just one of them.
In conclusion, obesity is really harmful to sexual function! Because of the increasing prevalence of the disease, the count and quality of sperm in men around the world will continue to decline. Men with infertility often have insufficient sperm numbers and motility. It will greatly reduce the chance of fertilization. Men who suffer from infertility often have the problem of insufficient sperm count. It is difficult to break through the barrier on the surface of the egg, which greatly reduces the chance of fertilization.
Through the above introduction, I believe everyone has some understanding about the relationship between obesity and sexual function. Men must face up to the problem of abdominal obesity and strengthen abdominal exercise to achieve good health!
